Why don't we extend (the late) Ms. Harvey and her 4-year old daughter the same courtesey as Mrs. Phillips and wait until ALL the facts are known before deciding who was at fault.
Phillip Phillips' mother gets arrested for DUI and excused are abound (i.e. she might be diabetic, it was a medical emergency, people should wait before they pass judgement, etc.). In this case, two people were killed and another critically injured and what is the discussion about? Welfare checks and lawsuits. No one comes to the aid of LaTosha Harvey and her 4 year old daughter. NO... She is condemned for living in public housing and not being married.
I wonder if she was Shaniqua Alazaye' Johnson, would so many people be so quick to "defend" her?
There is no need to let the (inconvenient) truths you so correctly pointed out from deterring some from attempting to do more of the same.
The bigger problem will be where to "bus" the students whose schools are closed. Some folks are all for school closings, just as long as the students don't show up at their front door.
This is nothing more than a way to give illegal aliens a legal right to vote. Lewis knows that as it stands now, legal US citizens can register to vote if they want to. The plan is to add illegal aliens to the Democratic plantation.
If the goal is to minimize gun violence, why then have there been no substantive talk about how we treat the mentally ill in this country. Why have there been no substantive talk about the increasing number of children on psychotropic drugs in this country? Why have there been no substantive talks about what information is reported on background checks for firearms purchases and who has to report this information? Why have there been no substantive talks about the dismal number of people who have been prosecuted under the current federal gun laws?
I am all for making the world my children and I live in a safer place. However, violence in America is a multifaceted problem. To oversimplify the violence problem to "just guns" is short sighted and foolish.
If gun laws (or any laws for that matter) worked, why are our jails and prisons so over crowded?
Why 10 rounds? Why not 9 or 8?
Please define terrorism, assault and mass murder. How many people must be killed for it to be a mass murder? Two, five, ten, 100? Any weapon can achieve this fate. Granted, it sound warm and emotional to say ban these assault weapons because they are used for terrorism and mass murder, but in reality, a snub –nose 38 can achieve the same goal.
Also, true assault weapons (the ones the military use) have been banned from the public since 1964.
